    What to Consider About Memory Care in Multnomah County

    Multnomah County, in the northwest region of Oregon along the Columbia River, has a population of 735,334. Of those residents, more than 10 percent are seniors in the vulnerable 65 and older age range, some of whom may be living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. These seniors may benefit from living in one of the 17 memory care facilities located within the county.

    In Multnomah County and the rest of Oregon, memory care facilities are referred to as Memory Care Communities and are overseen by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

    • Multnomah County’s cost of living is 142.8, more than 42 points higher than the national average of 100, although healthcare expenses are lower than the average at 74. However, housing and transportation both are higher than the national average at 215 and 148, respectively. Budget-conscious families might want to keep the higher cost of living in mind when thinking of relocating to the county to be closer to a loved one in care.
    • Multnomah County has a lot of cloudy, wet days. The area gets 44 inches of rainfall annually, slightly higher than the national average of 39 inches, and only sees 142 sunny days each year, compared to the U.S. average of 205 days. Sperling’s Comfort Index gives the county a 79 out of 100, much higher than the national average of 54, suggesting that seniors with arthritis and joint pain might be more comfortable living in the county than in other parts of Oregon.
    • Crime rates in Multnomah County are 47.4 for violent crime and 49.2 for property crime, both slightly higher than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. While these higher crime rates might be cause for concern, most secure memory care facilities have safeguards in place to keep their residents safe.
    • Oregon doesn’t tax Social Security benefits, partially taxes pensions and fully taxes retirement savings account income. Multnomah County seniors should keep Oregon’s tax laws in mind when preparing their memory care budgets.
